ST. LOUIS – Kids don’t stop getting sick after business hours and it can be difficult for parents to take off work for a doctor appointment. To help make things easier on parents, Mercy Clinic Pediatrics Tesson Ferry, 12348 Old Tesson Rd., Ste. 160, is making some changes to its office hours. It’s now open 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 8 to 4:30 p.m. on Friday and 8 to 11:30 a.m. on Saturday.
“We want to be available when it’s convenient for kids and parents,” said Dr. Sandeep Rohatgi, pediatrician at Mercy Clinic Pediatrics Tesson Ferry and associate pediatric medical director for Mercy Clinic East Region. “Our building also offers the convenience of an on-site pharmacy, imaging and lab. Plus, an urgent care will be opening in August.”
Five doctors – Rohatgi; Tracey Daly-Wilson, MD; Douglas Sakmar, MD; Amanda Regen, MD; and new to the practice Garland Tschudin, MD - are available, along with two pediatric nurse practitioners – Ann Schulte, CPNP, and Emily Riley, CPNP.
